HikingGreat!

Beautiful! It’s the spring and summer the waterfalls are beautiful, and in the fall and winter it is dried up and it’s so cool to see underneath all that water! Also a friendly not to difficult trail, with lots of variety to keep more avid hikers entertained as well. This enterance, if it is the one I am thinking of is easier and more family friendly, BUT occasionally there is paid parking.

Very clean and beautiful views! May be getting a bit too popular and even overcrowded at times, but still worth the time to come.

My husband and I enjoyed this short trail. You can wear a comfy sneakers because there isn’t much up and down. The falls were dry this season, but still the trail was a wonder to see.

Very disappointing falls, almost no water, clearly a very hot summer. Very VERY busy with people as well near the water. Very short hike too. Nice washrooms.

Fun trail, good for the dog to enjoy as well! We ended up going down the escarpment and playing in the water before a storm hit. LOTS of broken glass on the trails and skewed down the side of the banks.

Really enjoyed this little hike and the washrooms were open! Lots of shade and not too buggy. Unfortunately the waterfalls is all but dried up this time of year so that was disappointing .

Excellent 2km trail. Lower falls have wonderful heritage buildings. Excellent clean bathrooms large ample grassy spaces and a out of use shade and picnic area (benches have been removed). The area is very clean and very beautiful. Walk to upper falls is easy. Path is wide. One path takes you along the river and the more ambitious can cross the stream and go under the small trickle of water coming from above. One path leads you to the top. There is a barrier which can easily be crossed but past the barrier is very dangerous with crevasses and ledges and extreme caution and safety is advised. I would not advise children past the barrier at all. Parking is ample, costs of entry are low expect $30 for 3 adults and 4 children. Bonus electric car charging ports for 2 cars.

Nice park overall to spend the day. Trail was pretty short and easy but very beautiful waterfalls. Upper falls is an easy access to enjoy.

Easy hike and family friendly. Went on a weekday morning and it was quiet with only a few people. Upper and lower falls with a small quaint village you pass by on the way to the lower falls.

Nice and easy trail popular with families. OK in the morning, but a bit crowded closer to noon. Some beautiful waterfalls that you can't really see all that well.

I don’t usually write a review but if you are looking for a nice place for a walk this is a good place to go. If you’re looking for something a little more challenging ware you don’t have to pay for parking you should take another trail.

This was an absolutely beautiful trail. We paid $8 per person. I would gladly pay it again for how beautiful this trail was. 2 wonderful waterfalls. The trails are clearly marked. We were given a map. Lots of picnic tables. Restrooms were available on the trail. Took my dog and she loved it. We saw maybe 4 people total the whole trail. Went on a Thursday afternoon/evening.

Great little trail system with two beautiful water falls. Went mid-week in May. Paid parking. No access to base of falls on trail system. Pioneer heritage site. Well kept conservation area. Waterfall often dries late summer so don’t be disheartened if you go late summer/early fall

Went in the fall after the leaves all gone. Quiet and peaceful stroll rather than a hike. Beautiful waterfalls and path was suitable for kids and strollers. We enjoyed the rock formations.
